Just curious. I keep seeing on different places that I have a larger amount of east African heritage. I'm wondering if that's typical or not for these calculators. On gedmatch I'm all over the place but I still have a bigger affinity towards east African than I thought I would. Usually around 5-20% on gedmatch but its been as low as 2% to 67% on all of the gedmatch calculators. Also I have a 0-7% range of eastern Bantu on ancestrydna so its pretty low estimate range. Anyhow what are your DNA.land/gedmatch results?
